Hello Does anyone know of a Linux Compatible Wifi Card and which Linux Distribution is Capable of recognizing WIFI devices. I installed Enterprise Linux 4 on a Laptop Which came preinstalled with a Wifi Device but i could not get the Device to work

It isn't the distro that determines if your card will be capable of working.
You want to figure out what chipset it has by doing `lspci` and finding the chipset. After that google the chipset.
Personally, I recommend the RT25xx chipsets because they seem work well even in 64-bit. Make sure you have wireless-tools and the like installed because you'll need them in conjuction with ifconfig.
